Title choices…

You guys helped me brainstorm for a title back on THIS post. I’ve been thinking on them, testing some out…but I think I’ve narrowed the list down.

So, vote on your favorite below, okay? Feel free to leave any comments with suggestions and reasons why you liked or disliked titles, I love hearing what you guys think:

For a refresher, here’s the working back cover blurb:

More Than Ready

Theo Bradford is a Gatekeeper to Hades tasked with retrieving the evil that seeps out. He’s waited over nine hundred years for his mark to surface on his mate’s body, calling him to her. When it finally happens, a vicious demon he sent to Hades months ago somehow defies the binding vanquish and returns, setting his targets on the female. If Theo can’t connect with his mate, he’ll never gain the strength needed to protect his fated love from the demon’s wrath or defend the Gates of Hades.

Can’t Fight Fate

Graduating college in two years was easy for eighteen-year-old genius Sadie Nowland. But explaining the mark that appeared on her shoulder four days ago has her stumped. Then, a mystery man shows up and claims the mark identifies her as his mate, catapulting her neatly laid out life into chaos. The more time she spends with him, the harder it is to deny their connection – a connection her brain can’t comprehend and her body can’t deny. And that primal bond proves more imperative to their survival than either could ever imagine.

Need your help…

Titles stump me. Even more than writing back cover blurbs. So, I need your help!

I’ve got a new project (not contracted or anything, just a work in progress) and I need a title! Now, if this is just a working title. If it ever got published, more than likely the publisher would change the title or tweak it, but still. It’s nice to have a working title instead of “Theo and Sadie” which I’ve had for about five months now. LOL!!

Okay, ready? Here’s the “blurb” (it’s a work in progress as well)

I know the blurb isn’t much to go on when it comes to figuring out a title, but give it a shot. I came up with a few during a little brainstorm: The Veil, Bound by Fate, Veiled, Keeper of Hades, Gatekeeper, Devoted, The Keepers, Marked, Valor, Fortitude, Fury, Brewing, Out of Time…

See, I told you titles weren’t my strong point. . . Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

**Sorry, but I have to put this here: This post is geared toward entertainment. Chatting up titles. Talking writing. If we happen to use a title, or a variation of a title, offered in the comments of this post, (including suggestions given via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and all other social media outlets) said person surrenders all claims to the title.

The Vote is on . . .

Hey, everyone, Emma Martin here. Wow, last week you guys really came through for us when Lynn asked for help thinking of the title for my third book.

Yeah, I call them MY books, even though, technically, LYNN writes them.

But, I’m the subject matter, so I can call them mine, right?

Sometimes I think Lynn only likes me because my crazy demon-fighting  life  makes for wicked-awesome stories to write about.

Not many people have a tattoo on their wrists that glows & burns like the fires of Hades in the presence of the undead, so yeah, I’d say my life is crazy enough to write novels about.

ANYWAY. . .

I begged Lynn to let me on the blog to share with you the final choices. . .

Which one do you like best?

I know which one I like the best, but will you (or LYNN for that matter) think the same?

Leave a comment and let me know what you think. . . I’ll reply back!

Which one?

You guys ROCK!

You gave such great ideas in my post a few weeks back about titles.

Frostbite is the title of the first book about Amanda (Mandy) Smith. CLICK HERE to read that little blurb.

Book two is called Absolute Zero, so I needed a title for the third book.

Of all the suggestions and advice, both from the blog post and from fellow crit partners, I’ve narrowed it down to a final few.

Which one do you like best?

Cryos

Snowblind

Whiteout

Frozen Night

I know which is my favorite, but I want to hear from you guys, too. Titles often change when the book is contracted because, let’s face it, publishers know more about that kind of stuff. But it’s still fun to throw around fun and catchy book titles in the mean time.

So, let me know what you think. . . .
